Archie's funeral, homesick dwarves and a vengeful Hook: Things get even darker on this week's episode of 'Once Upon A Time'
If last week’s episode of “Once Upon A Time” was dark, this week’s is pitch black.
In a preview of the episode titled “The Outsider,” airing Sunday, January 13 at 7 p.m. ET on CTV, a somber group of Storybrook residents stand around Archie’s coffin before they bury him.
A tearful Mary Margaret speaks at his grave site, insisting that the kind-hearted psychologist will live on inside of them, “reminding us to be our best selves . . . and always fight for what we believe in,” she says, fighting tears.
Archie’s murder has shaken Storybrooke, and Leroy and the dwarves declare they want to go home to Fairytale Land.
“We fought really had to get here,” Emma insists.
But the dwarves are afraid that what happened to Archie, could happen to them. And, Leroy reveals that now that the curse has lifted, they’re all afraid of people outside the city limits who might not see magic as acceptable. “Like a girl turning into a wolf,” says Ruby.
“And we’re a bit homesick,” Leroy admits.
And if that wasn’t enough turmoil, Belle finds a vengeful and angry Hook in the Storybrook harbour. In a sneak peek gallery of the episode, it appears that Hook goes after Belle to get to Rumplestiltskin.
With Belle seeking Sherriff Emma to report Hook’s dastardly deeds, Mr. Gold shares the dark history between him and Hook with Belle…and reveals who took Hook’s hand all those years ago.
“Once Upon A Time" airs this Sunday at 10 p.m. ET on CTV, after the Golden Globes coverage. Full episodes are also available online at CTV.ca.
